Activities at Field House
The Activities Coordinators here at Field House are always keen to learn about residents' interests and hobbies, tailoring meaningful activities to the likes and dislikes of those we support. Our mission is to ignite the past, appeal to current interests and embrace new ones, improving quality of life whilst stimulating the mind and senses. Activities are carried out via small groups or individually, supported by local volunteers. We have access to a range of local community facilities and nearby places of interest, prompting community engagement, and hold special events at the home, where we are entertained by guest vocalists and performers, with 'The Quiz Master' being a fan favourite.
Life at Field House Care Home
A Light Trim
Our housekeeper, Danielle, is giving one of our gent's hair a trim, as she is also a qualified barber!
Divisional Carer of the Year
Congratulations to Melissa Jones, who has been named as a Divisional Winner in the 2020 Barchester Care Awards. Melissa is a finalist in the Carer of the Year category and has been invited to attend a virtual awards ceremony on 8th October, where she will find out if she has won overall.
We are reuniting residents and families who have not seen each other since March. It was very (happily) emotional!
Keeping in Touch
We recognise the importance of keeping in touch with families during the current restrictions. We are using technology such as Skype and video calling, but some of our residents prefer pen and paper. Here, one of our residents is writing a card to a relative to wish them happy birthday and to let them know he is having a fun time in the home!
We take pride in encouraging our residents to utilise the skills they have developed through our lives. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we have been unable to have the minister at the home to deliver the monthly service.
Here, one of our residents, John, who is a lay preacher, is delivering a service to a small group of residents in the conservatory of the home. John said that being able to help at this time of uncertainty gave him “great pleasure”.
Our residents enjoy our daily walking club around the grounds of the home in the sunshine, which helps to stay active and maintain mobility throughout lockdown.
